An all too common type of question (whether for requesting magickal assistance, life coaching, timeline jumping, etc.), followed by an excellent response by Amythyst. I've spoken before of what I call "the rotten fruits of desperation," and Amythyst offers wise words for people who find themselves obsessed with controlling a particular outcome and timing. The only thing I would add is that often this kind of dynamic indicates past life bleedthrough -- old patterns affecting our perceptions and magnifying our feelings to bizarre and disproportionate degrees in this lifetime. Compulsion enters the picture. When that happens, nothing is as it appears, and basing magick on an illusion or distorted perception creates far more trouble than you imagine it would, because you're only looking at the tip of the iceberg or even its reflection on the ocean, not the deep, massive, unseen parts of it. Thanks to Amythyst for bringing practical wisdom to the mystical realm. :)
